America needs to be more like China?

15 Nov

Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential hanger-on Michele “Krazy” Bachmann is saying America’s Great Society should be more like the Great Wall of China.

“The ‘Great Society’ has not worked and it’s put us into the modern welfare state,” she said. “If you look at China, they don’t have food stamps. If you look at China, they’re in a very different situation. They save for their own retirement security…They don’t have the modern welfare state and China’s growing. And so what I would do is look at the programs that LBJ gave us with the Great Society and they’d be gone.”

I’m not really sure how to address this; here we have an unabashed uber-conservative who’s been screaming for the past three years about America’s so-called Socialist President, and yet she’s saying we – the United States – needs to be like China.

One can only assume Krazy knows China is a communist country, and that she should understand that the Chinese people don’t necessarily “retire” like those of us in the West, they work their entire lives to support the state; if they can’t work there are programs – even in good old China – that help to take care of them.

What’s abundantly clear is Bachmann’s continued ignorance of anything – I can’t think of a single issue she hasn’t botched when addressing it; she’s clearly not qualified to be president, and it’s astonishing she continues to be re-elected to the Congress – which speaks volumes about her constituents.
